Spending billions of dollars on road expansion while mass transit remains underfunded completely misses the urgency of the climate moment we are in! We need to all work together to make sure that Governor Murphy backs up his climate talk with climate action.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is continuing work on the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed Great Lakes Tunnel permit. Clean Water Action opposes the proposed tunnel project, which would put the environmentally and culturally important Straits of Mackinac at serious risk to benefit a tar sands pipeline at a time of climate emergency. We are asking the USACE to thoroughly review the potential environmental impact of the proposed tunnel before making their permitting decision.
